GUWAHATI, Nov 14 - The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today alleged that the Tarun Gogoi-led Congress Government is posing hurdles to the update process of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) of 1951. The AASU also demanded that the Government should not engage the officials involved in the NRC update process in any other work.
In a release here, the AASU said that the process of updating the NRC is in a crucial phase as the verification of the documents has started and house-to-house verification is scheduled to start from next week. The process should be completed by December so that the draft NRC can be published by January 1. The Supreme Court has been monitoring the process and fixed a deadline for completion of the job. But at this juncture, the State Government is creating hurdles in the way by engaging officers involved in the process in other works, the AASU alleged.
